Larry Roy Kolody

(August 13, 1950 - February 23, 2022)

 

“Across the years I walked with you,

In deep green forests, on shores of sand.

And when our time on earth is through,

In Heaven too, you will have my hand.

It is with profound sadness, and far too soon, to announce the passing of Larry Kolody of Camrose, AB.  Larry passed away peacefully on February 23, 2022, at the age of 71, after a short, but courageous battle with esophageal cancer.

He is survived by, and will be forever remembered by his loving wife and best friend of 42 years, Star Kolody; his sons Chris Kolody (Chris’s daughters, Alexa J. Starley Kolody, Mackenna Elsie Kolody, and Willow Mae Sawatzky), Rick Kolody, and Randy (Rene) Kolody (Randy and Rene’s children Kristen, Josh, Brice, and Hannah; and their grandchildren Kaleb, Paisley, and Amber); two sisters, Carol Ford, and Shirley Carter (Martin Sagh); two brothers, Jerry (Lainey) Kolody, and Gordon Kolody; one special brother-in-law and forever friend, Ernie Thibault; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Larry was predeceased by his parents, Fred and Claire (Forth) Kolody; two sisters, Gladys Blade, and Doris Kolody; one brother Donald F. Kolody; his paternal grandparents, Samuel and Annie Kolody, and his maternal grandparents, Julius and Martha Forth.

It is Larry’s wish that no funeral service will be held.  Cremation has taken place.

Donations will be gratefully accepted to the Cross Cancer Institute of Edmonton AB or the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
